Hello my name is Jesus Zavala ( Zavle as my friends call me ) I’m 29 years old married with a French girl where we live in Valle de Bravo ( host of 2009 world Enduro Championship ) a beautiful small town in the hills that is two hours from Mexico city where we own the local Husaberg and Husqvarna dealership.
All my life I have been surrounded by dirt bikes thanks to my Dad who is still at age 64 a Veteran National Enduro Champion as well as my whole family involvement in motorbikes including my mom, my sister and my wife. At age 4 was when I got my first chance behind a handlebar and was not until the age of 14 when I entered my first off-road race.
Here in Mexico you must have a lot of money if you want to become a good racer I used to have my father’s support but since I got married it has all changed so this is the main reason I am looking for sponsorship.
The reason I am searching for sponsorship is due to that 2010 looks to be one of the best in my racing career. I have been chosen to be team leader of the Husqvarna Enduro team. As you well know Husqvarna and Red Bull are world renowned brands that generates large media coverage around their riders where there plan for the team this year is to take us abroad to race in the following events.
Erzberg Rodeo ( I have raced that event in 2008 and finished 38th within official time.
Red Bull-Romaniacs ( I have raced that event too this 2009 finishing in 13th place.)
